This is a Port of the Official PS4 Remote Play App for Android. Their are now 2 ZIP Versions of the Mod, the Normal(Includes everything: Remote Play App, DualShockManger App, and the require files to display the PS4 Remote Play Icon under the "Connect to PS4" tab in the PlayStation App) and the Minimal(Includes only the Remote Play App). The Manual Method is still available, if you wish you can just install the Stand Alone APK and it should work fine(Below). Its recommended to have a 5Ghz Router(On the Phone side) and the PS4 connected via Lan Cable. If you have a Xperia Device please check post #2.

I've never recovered after rooting my S3, it never properly worked after that faithful day, kept restarting for no reason.

Rooting is easy you just need to be careful what else you install on top of it

I love Android and my smartphone never leaves my side, but I'll stick to remote play on my PS Vita.

Don't blame you, I can connect my DS4 to my phone and remote play on my phone but it won't do both together which is a bit crap. Not that I would want to cause I bought a 55" TV for the PS 4

i use remote play when i cannot get use of the TV. Normally due to umizoomi being on or peppa pig.
I use my unrooted samsung galaxy note 10.1, works ok .
This only works as i am in the same room, or at least in BlueTooth range of the PS4 for the controllers to work.
Then again if i am out of the house i dont really want to play games. I am to busy hugging trees or fishing out my kids from a pond.
